    Other Properties

    note:James Watt was reknownedprimarily for the invention of thecylinder piston steam engine.However, in the latter part of theeighteenth century he spent timeworking on other inventions,including this copying machine. Theneed for such a machine was

    created apparently because Wattspent so much time having to copybusiness correspondence betweenhimself and his partner MatthewBoulton.The copier was patented in 1780,and around 630 were sold by theend of 1781. It operated by the useof damp tissue paper being pressed

    against a document written in aspecial type of ink, which then led tothe offset transfer of the ink to thedamp tissue. Though the offset copywas in reverse, the tissue was fine,enabling the words to be seen fromthe other side.$3,000-5,000

  • Property from the Estate of Janet BrownLOTS 490-548

    For socialites and successful, busy women, the advice andassistance of the late Janet Brown on matters of fashion andstyle was invaluable. From her small, white-walled boutiquein the unlikely town of Port Washington on Long Island, NewYork, she styled women from all ports of call includingLondon, Paris, South America, New York, Greenwich andLong Island, to name a few, with a unique talent and visionthat combined classic design, elegance, premier quality, andavant-garde taste. Ms. Brown understood the provenance ofher customers as well as their world and inspired them tomake something of themselves and always to be ahead ofthe game.

    As a New York tastemaker, her clients relied on her for anintroduction to the most current and influential Europeancouture designers like Jil Sander, Miuccia Prada, and LoroPiana before they were ever accessible in the United States,let alone Manhattans most prestigious, high-profile stores.Ms. Brown believed in her sense of style and abided by herbasic rule of only buying premium quality merchandise thatexuded understated elegance. Following her death at 59 inMarch 2007, her eponymous shop closed that Decemberafter almost a quarter-century of profoundly influencing thetaste and fashion sensibilities of her devotees.

    Above all, she was selling the taste of Janet Brown, and thattaste had its origins in her native Philadelphia. While still astudent at Temple University, she had the good fortune towork with Nan Duskin at her elegant store on the 1700 blockof Walnut Street. Her employment there served her wellwhen she moved to New York and opened her shop in 1983,just in time to make her unique retail operation a triumph, asindependent designer boutiques were disappearing becausepopular, couture designers were establishing their own shops,and department stores were in a flurry of expansion.

    Browns vision to transpose the ordinary into theextraordinary made her a hugely successful business womanand she became the most elite in the retail womens fashionindustry. In her private life, these attributes were evident as

    well and are reflected in her furniture and silver featured inthe Fine English and Continental Furniture and DecorativeArts sale. Janet Browns stylish taste is reflected in a fineMaison Jansen Royal dining table (lot 500), a walnutcabinet designed by Pierre Chareau (lot 490) , and small lowtable attributed to the important ceramicist Georges Jouve(lot 495).

    Freemans will be offering many more items from JanetBrowns collection over the course of our spring and fall 2012auction seasons. The May 12th Modern & Contemporary Artauction will include an outstanding suite of Brice Mardenprints, a rare woodcut by Donald Judd along with twentyother outstanding examples by American and Europeanartists of the 20th century.
